Childs has featured far less in the second series following the arrival of new characters Chloe Simms, Mick Norcross, Gemma Collins and Joey Essex.
Meanwhile, Childs has not featured in any major storyline in the latest run as the programme has centered on the relationships of James Argent and Lydia Bright, Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger and Kirk Norcross and Lauren Pope.
According to the Daily Star, Childs has had a row with producers and had a "diva moment" because she is concerned about her portrayal on the programme.
Childs's manager Claire Powell tweeted at the weekend: "Need you in it more [Amy] as everyone saying it (sic)."
The Only Way Is Essex continues tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
